Hello Hello Hello readers! I would first like to start off by telling you a little about myself. My name is Kristen Henry and I am a Social Work major with a minor in Psychology. I am finishing up my last year at Appalachian State University and have loved every minute of living in the beautiful mountains, even if the weather is a little unpredictable at times. I am one of the young women living in the Blackburn parsonage this year and am so grateful every day that I was given the opportunity to live in this wonderful town and be a part of the community of Todd in any way.
Some things you might not know about me are I love to sing, all day, every day! I use to get in trouble when I was a kid for singing too much. My parents always said, “No singing at the dinner table.” They tired to pretend they didn’t enjoy it! I LOVE musicals and sometimes wish life was more like a musical! I try to save up money to go to different shows and it is my dream to audition for a broadway musical one day. In Feb. my boyfriend and I are going to see Les Miserables in Charlotte!!!!! I also play my guitar and lap dulcimer sometimes even though I don’t think I’m that great, but I’ll give it a whirl! I love to dance because it gets me moving, makes me feel good, and is simply fun. I was on a competitive dance team for 12 years so I guess it’s been ingrained into me! I love to be goofy and to make people laugh! It’s the best feeling when you bring a smile to someone’s face. I also love doing crafts and painting. I enjoy making things with my own too hands. One day I want to learn how to make blown glass, do pottery, sew my own clothes, take parts and fix up/build an old 1950’s car, have a garden, and the list could go on. I want to be something of a Renaissance woman and have many different skills. I JUST WANT TO DO IT AL!
If you haven’t already figured it out I love the arts and believe they are extremely important and help us express ourselves and connect to our spiritual side. Sometimes you can feel something so deeply and words just cannot express what you are experiencing.
Well that’s me in a nutshell and about all I have for you all tonight. I will be writing more on the blog from now on and so will my other roommates so please keep reading and feel free to comment. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week and I hope to get to know you all better. Let’s share our stories with one another and learn and grow together. Now wouldn’t that be fun!
